Some guys will say there’s “no such thing as overtraining,” but that’s simply incorrect. Overtraining is a real phenomenon and can definitely hold you back from attaining optimal progress from your efforts.
Many beginners train with unbridled enthusiasm and impatience, so they tend to train far too much when they start out. They think that the more time they spend in the gym, the more muscle they’ll gain. But remember: We don’t build muscle while we train, we do so while we rest and recover. Most novice lifters will get surprisingly fast results from just 3–4 days in the gym per week at most, and they should never weight train more than two days in a row.
